30 by 30: Walt Disney World


My friends and I planned this trip for after one of our busiest times at work. We knew we needed to get away for a few days from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco and to the hustle and bustle of an amusement park. We wanted to do two of the parks at least and I ended up going to three of the parks at Walt Disney World and then Universal as well.  Continue reading “30 by 30: Walt Disney World”

California Dreaming – Big Sur



I know it’s been awhile since it’s been posting – being in a relationship is harder than I remember it being. Trying to find time to spend together and then also spend time apart to be able to do the things we enjoy – so difficult when we’re also busy professionals.

This past weekend we were able to get away and have some fun while we were there. We got ourselves to Big Sur – it’s just so beautiful down there. Because it’s all protected, the water is so clear and blue! Just amazing. Enjoy the pictures below! Continue reading “California Dreaming – Big Sur”

30 by 30: Hot Air Balloon Ride

This was one of the most spontaneous trips I’ve taken. Normally, I’m a type of person to plan everything out before I get to a city and have places I want to go to, or things I want to do each day. Busy season (it’s seriously never ending) and my trip to Chicago had taken a lot out of me so all I had planned was a flight and a hotel room for the weekend.

Chicago: Food

I’m a food person. If you’ve read my blog before you know that I love food – making it, eating it, but Chicago has a great food scene I really enjoyed. I definitely tried to go to some of the more popular places since I was only going to be there a few days, but I got some great places in. These are on the most popular lists on yelp or by Chicago critics – one even has a Michelin star.  Continue reading “Chicago: Food”

30 by 30: Broadway musical, part 2

If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll know that I’m really into lists. For whatever reason when I find a list I’m interested, I feel the need to finish it. Even though I’ve been to a musical on Broadway already, whenever I’m in New York City, I do feel the need to see one (or more). This time around my trip includes checking off another one of my bucket list item, but of course, I needed to see a musical with the best friend.  Continue reading “30 by 30: Broadway musical, part 2”

NYC: Statue of Liberty Crown Access

Getting access up to the crown is actually not that difficult. I definitely got the tickets to go up a few months ahead of time since I was going during the holiday season, but we checked for other days and it looks like about 3 weeks is good if you’re not traveling during any of the busy times. Summer? I’d probably plan ahead. Continue reading “NYC: Statue of Liberty Crown Access”
